Hi!

I was searching on microsoft web site about managing xp sp2 windows firewall
via domain group policy but i couldn't understand something.
In order to set firewall settings in 2000 or 2003 domain controller should i
have first copy the system.adm administrative template from windows xp
\systemroot\inf location to 2003 or 2000 server \systemroot\inf
location????
Or should i download from microsoft web site???

Hi

You can copy them from a WinXP SP2 computer, or you can download
them from Microsoft's web site, both will be the same.

You can download the new WinXP SP2 adm files from here:

If you want to configure the SP2 firewall:

Take a look at WF_XPSP2.doc "Deploying Windows Firewall Settings for
Microsoft Windows XP with Service Pack 2", it is downloadable from
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyi...

(I see that the spreadsheet referenced to in the link above does not
include the new entries in the WUAU.adm file)
